Did you know that The American Optometric Association recommends that patients get their first eye exam as early as 6 months of age for detection of any visual impairment? As an adult, it is recommended that patients get an annual eye exam. As you get older, or if there is family history, you may be at a higher risk for diabetes, hypertension or ocular disease. Getting an annual eye exam can help in early detection or prevention of these diseases.
The East West Eye Institute understands there are many other doctors you can go to for your annual eye exam. In choosing us, you are choosing a team of Doctors and Staff who strives to serves you. When you visit any of our offices, you will find that we will do our best to correct your vision.

In addition to standard contact lenses, we offer:
Multifocal Contact Lenses
Multifocal contact lenses are a great way to avoid relying on a pair of reading glasses to see your books, cell phone, tablets or computer screen. Recent advances in multifocal contact lens designs allow patients to perform distance tasks such as driving, as well as near tasks such as reading text messages.
Corneal reshaping is a special contact lens which is worn overnight to reshape the eye and removed during the day, resulting in clear vision without vision correction throughout the day. This is a great option for children or active adults allowing patients, reducing the need to wear contact lenses or glasses during the day.
Keratoconus is a condition when the eye is irregular in shape, which may not be completely corrected by glasses or soft contact lenses. A custom fit soft or gas permeable contact lens may be necessary to achieve optimal vision.
Specialty Contact Lenses
Eyes that are difficult to fit due to eye injury, disease or surgeries may not be completely corrected by glasses or soft contact lenses. The doctors at East West Eye Institute are trained to fit the most advanced contact lens designs available in order to optimize vision, comfort and eye health.
